Daphne by Josh Malerman 🌟 Arc Review 🌟

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!!!

After finishing this book, I read in the acknowledgements Malerman expressing that Daphne is a love letter to horror, to basketball, and also to anxiety. This made me really see how powerful this horror story is. It’s anxiety that the main character, Kit, deals with and it’s the ghost story of Daphne that really burrows in the girls basketball team’s minds which creates the reality of the horror itself. It’s the constant unwanted thoughts of this scary ghost, Daphne, that brings her to life to actually murder her victims.

This is brilliant horror. I felt like the writing is similar to Stephen King 80’s-90’s era which I love. I definitely recommend this to horror fans!
